5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Difficult Revision but Dr. Kim Got It Perfect! San Francisco, CA

Dr. Kim was very personable and available to answer any questions. My husband said that Dr. Kim restored his faith in doctors putting humanity back in medicine. He's a great surgeon.

1 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Beware and Do Research on This Doctor - San Francisco, CA

It's been years and I am still paying for Dr Roy Kim's malpractice. I still have scars and damages that he did to my breasts. I honestly cannot believe he is still doing breast augmentations and that he still has his license. If you are willing to take a "hit" or "miss" result. Then this doctor is for you.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Done Having Children (Or So I Thought) Much Needed Lift/aug - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Kim is a very skilled surgeon with an artistic flair!

29 Year Old Mom with 2 Kids - San Francisco, CA

My experience was so good the girls that work there are so nice and understanding. Dr. Roy Kim was super nice. I liked that he was not in a rush. He took his time talking to me and my husband about the procedure and my boobs look so good I love them I'm so happy I got them done. If I had to do it it I would choose dr kim.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Enthusiastic Recommendation - San Francisco, CA

I was very fortunate to have Dr. Kim perform a minimal incision face lift and neck lift six months ago. He was recommended to me by a close friend. From the beginning, Dr Kim's communication was thorough and very helpful. He understood my preferences and accurately described the proceedures and likely results.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Review - San Francisco, CA

I have been to Dr. Kim for several procedures and have found him and his staff to be very professional. His work is excellent and I feel 15 years younger. His surgery and follow-up were not complicated at all and my healing time was relatively short and I was back at work in no time.
